New Morphing Synthesizer For iPad, Interpol

interpol-ipad-synthesizerDeveloper Alexander Smith has introduced Interpol – a new software synth for iPad that lets you create two sound setups and morph seamlessly between them with the cross-fader.

Over 40 parameters can be merged and all seamlessly and in real time.

The 6 voices can either be set to de-tunable unison or you can choose between 8 chord structures. When morphing between chords, the notes glide like polyphonic portamento.

Interpol also features AudioBus and MIDI support (no specifics are provided on this, though).

Here’s an audio demo of Interpol:

Interpol is available in the App Store.

  1. Interpol has a good sound, partly evidenced by the girth of the very last example. (Great name, BTW.) That’s easy to find now, so it depends on how many people embrace its one major trick. Its clearly much more for performance than sound design per se, so it has a 3-D thing going on. You have to massage the right morphing partners into shape to make it shine. This is a great example of a place where iPads can rock: left-field apps that add unique voices for solos and coloring. $3.99 feels almost absurd when you consider what it would cost as hardware. I’m pretty skeptical, but I’d buy this for the great feel you can impart as you play. That’s double-plus worthy.

  2. NICE ^_^

    Some enhancement / future update requests…

    1. Have a dedicated LFO to toggle / flip-flop between the two sound parts automatically.
    2. Add MIDI tempo sync to the LFO, to allow rhythmical morphing in time with a MIDI master app or clock.

    3. Add extra sound part pages (3, 4…8), make them accessable via tabs.

    4. Add a type of sequencer / arpeggiator function to step between the sound parts.
    Have MIDI tempo sync for the sequencer, to allow rhythmical morphing in time with a MIDI master app or clock.

    5. A second oscillator (VCO) to each sound part.

    … ideas for thought!


  3. I just ran a search for “twisted electrons”. Why is this the only entry that came up? It has nothing to do with it.
